Denmark's capital Copenhagen has set a new record cold for the month of May with 0.8 °C (33.4 °F) measured in Frederiksberg on May 5, 2019. The temperature record was set during historic Arctic blast which gripped almost entire Europe.
According to the CPH Post, the frosty beginning to the day followed a night that included hail, sleet and snow.
Denmark capital Copenhagen has been experiencing all four seasons lately, Post's Ben Hamilton wrote, adding that DMI confirmed temperatures won't climb higher than 14 °C (57.2 °F) until well into the second half of May.
Så bliver det den sidste dag, for denne omgang, med maksimum temperaturer under 10 grader de fleste steder.
Vi får også i dag blæst, op til hård vestlig vind, og byger de flere steder.
